Magdalene Centre

The Magdalene Centre is currently not available for hire, due to the coronavirus restrictions. We have one user - Appleton Childcare - who is using the building to support the important work of our local Primary Schools by providing an Out of School Club for children whose parents cannot pick up or collect children from school at the usual hours.

The church is very happy to support the community in this way. However, we do not have the resources to meet the stringent sanitisation program that would be required to allow multiple groups to use the building.

The Magdalene Centre is a multi-functional space in the handsome Victorian church of St. Mary Magdalene.  It’s the parish hall... worship and concert space... function room... school room... meeting place... and community resource... all rolled into one!  The Magdalene Centre is situated next to the Primary School and close to the Railway Station.
